Y Lift® Introduction
Y LIFT® is a minimally invasive facial contouring which accentuates the cheekbones, under eye area, defines the jawline and lifts the upper neck producing noticeable results.
You might have seen it on Doctor Oz and The Doctors Show known as the “30-Minute Miracle Facelift”. The Y LIFT® procedure takes between 15-30 minutes and delivers noticeable results. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic and lasts between 1-3 years, depending on the product used.
No Scars – No General Anesthesia – No Incisions – Noticeable Results
How Does Y Lift® Work?
Youthful facial contours are shaped like the letter “Y”. The face appears wide at the top in the eye and cheekbone region then narrows to a point at the chin. As we age, the arms of the “Y” shape begin to widen steadily downward. As this widening occurs, the youthful shape of the face begins to disappear and like a balloon, the face deflates and loses volume. The surface that was once taut becomes misshapen, wrinkled and sunken as a result of the aging process.
In the aging process, volume and structure are what is gradually lost and absorbed by our bodies.
The Y LIFT® replenishes the lost volume and restores youthful facial contours. The uniqueness of the Y LIFT® is that it not only revives the ideal youthful shape, but also enhances and beautifies the natural features making the procedure suitable for persons of all ages. It accentuates the cheekbone region, revives the under eye area and defines the jawline and upper neck.
It requires no incisions, stitches or general anesthesia.
The Y LIFT® procedure is performed using a specialized titanium instrument which is inserted beneath the skin and then maneuvered throughout designated parts of the facial region to lift and contour the muscles, fascia and fat underlying the skin. Once lifted, hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in the skin is used to hold the newly elevated position in place at which point the titanium tube is removed from the treatment site. The rejuvenated face is then “sculpted” to accent and highlight each individual’s beauty.

Y Lift® FAQs
How long is the recovery of the Y Lift®?
Fortunately, there is no recovery time with the Y Lift®. However, you may feel slight tenderness, soreness and possible minor bruising for a couple of days post procedure. The patient can immediately resume his or her daily activities post procedure.
How does the Y Lift® differ from other filler procedures?
Y Lift® is technically not a filler, rather the specialized instrumentation, placement and technique. The instrument is inserted beneath the skin to instantly lift the muscles, fascia and fat just below the skin. This adjustment provides the greatest lift in the face. However, fillers are used. A hyaluronic acid filler, a substance that is found naturally in the body, is then used to hold everything its newly elevated position. The patient is then instantly restored, rejuvenated and enhanced.
How is the Y Lift® different from a traditional facelift?
Advancements in current cosmetic technology have made it possible to undergo non-invasive procedures that can mirror the results of traditional face lifts. Patients enjoy similar results without the unwelcoming post-operative effects, such as facial discomfort and extensive healing time.
Can the effects of the Y Lift® be reversed?
Absolutely. The Y LIFT® is one of the few procedures that is fully reversible.
Do the results vary from patient to patient?
It does. The Y LIFT® uniquely benefits each patient. We utilize a very individualistic approach and study the facial structure of each patient. We will customize the procedure so that it accents your specific features.
